A selection of sculpture and photography, recording aspects of 50 significant walks undertaken from November 2010 to November 2011.
My artwork in recent years has focused on site specific sculpture and installations linked to significant places and environments from travels around the wild areas in the UK and abroad. I use photography to capture transient work made from a variety of natural and found materials. I also create more lasting sculptural works and installations from both natural and man-made materials in response to my ephemeral pieces.

She has a 1st Class Honours Degree in Art and Design and an MA in Art, Craft & Design Education. She is also a qualified leader of outdoor activities and expeditions.
